My 11yr old going to bed early alot.

My 11yr old baby has been going to bed really early lately sometimes he says he has a headache which I know he gets sometimes because I myself get bad migrains. But he is on meds for a preventative. He still gets them. But he's been going to bed around 6 or 7. one night he went to bed at 5. I'm thinking his depressed maybe about over hearing our talk about not being able to have a great Christmas and our finances being bad. We live in a small apartment and its hard to keep things like that away from him. What should we do??

    Your child can be having sleep disorders. Or it can just be a cause of boredom. There can be other physical ailments which you are not being able to discover. Firstly go for a thorough routine check up to the medical practitioner. His body can be in trouble which has deep impact on sleep. If that is alright, then you should speak with your kid as to why he wants to sleep so early. He can be reluctant. Do not force him. From the next day try to engage him in some activities, which will attract him, like watching one particular cartoon show, or read out a story to him, or as soon as evening befalls, take him to the park, and play football with him, you can also ask him to help in the kitchen. When is will be active, he will not get the chance to be bored or depressed.
